I've been perusing this forum for the better part of the last hours and I'm honestly not finding much that screams "This is awesome and viable in EE!" that is NOT a Monk or a Monk splash. I want to start running an alt into EE content when I'm not able to play my TR (since I only play him when a friend, who TR'd at the same time, is with me), but what I'm looking for is... I guess kind of specific and I don't know if it would be effective post-20.
-Self-sufficient. I don't know if I'll be grouping or soloing (or both), but I think this is a must.
-NO MONK LEVELS. Period.
-Can handle traps EITHER through having the means to avoid them or disable them outright.
-Not a stealth class.
-Preferably a Dwarf. I loves my dwarves. <3
-Can function in EE content and would not be considered useless.
Additional notes: I'm VIP with every class unlocked as well as Veteran and 32-point builds, with enough platinum that I could get one or two tomes by level 7 out of the AH.
I've been wondering about a melee/arcane splash that can use non-DC damage spells and buffs, but I don't know what I would use (or even where to start!), so that's probably the one selection I'm "leaning" towards over the others, since Battle-Mages in most games/stories are my favorites.
Any suggestions? :3
